Here's the rounding from the top of the second beat.

Course change to 285 - Heartbreaker with an early drop and rounding, 30 boatlengths ahead.

What ION should do is put a dotted line displaying separation distance, and then a dotten line from each bow to the next mark. Then a arrow at the comittee boat displaying wind speed & direction. That would be the shit. This is just a complete tease....

Russ and Jerry are reading this thread, just make your suggestions. I think it's better than "just a tease" but there is still a lot to be done. The point of the exercise is to figure out how to make it as perfect as possible for fans of yacht racing, and to keep the equipment requirements very minimal.

Sorry - 45 seconds ahead at the mark - not 30 BL's. I'm relying on spotters for much of my info, and my bride left me for a faster boat.

A little late know, but look into streaming audio or video for events such as this. Kepp it less of a professional production and more Gonzo in complete SA fashion. Then the servers would burn up. All good just he same.

The problem with streaming is that it only works when the connection is reliable - which it pretty much isn't at most events we've been to.

Are you saying that this is a professional production? :):):)

NO!!!! Did I just give you a big head? Clean what you are doing is exactly what this sport needs, less of a pro production, smaller venues, and more live in the thick of it. BTW, a satellite feed to the local server would solve most connection issues.

Something like ion with a video split screen would be cool.

Thanks for noticing. Mr. Clean is feeling a bit under the weather - 8 days without a full night's sleep will do that to ya.

Youtube takes a few minutes to process videos, I put the link up when I post them, but the link doesn't go live for 5 minutes or so.

Interestingly - if Heartbreaker were to win the next race, the teams could agree to go in, then leave monday as a single, winner-take-all race. I don't think they'll go that way, but it'd be a fun twist. We'll see what happens shortly.

I'll get the whole start on this video, ya whiny bitches.

Agree, 2 D is the way to go. I am finding that the updates stop after a few iterations, even when I leave the zoom alone. I think the default zoom should be on the order of 300-400 meters... That way you see the whole course and can get a better idea of the positioning.

Also, I noticed on the weather legs that when there's an update some of the existing courses (the red / blue tracing lines) seem to change as well. Can't figure out why this might happen. I didn't have the focus on either of the boats (where the application keeps that boat in the middle of the screen.)

I appreciate the efforts being made to get the job done... Thanks for being there!

Clean,

I lost interest in Sailing Anarchy a few years ago, but ths OTW forum and your coverage has brought me back. AWESOME coverage: the commentary, photos, videos, and live tracking have been great.

Thanks for pulling this together. The organizers of the Canada's Cup owe you some gratitude for bringng this regatta to the masses.

Great racing, too. I expected Honour to struggle with the wheel (especially on the start), but that doesn't appear to have limited them too badly.

As M8 said - there's some javascript in IonE, so an update is a good idea. Also, Russ made some changes to the code, you'll have to refresh to get them - that help the refresh work a little better, as well as fixing the "disappearing boat" issue.

We're near an attention signal...

Thanks for the great feedback. You've all been very helpful to Jerry and Russ - and I hope you can see the same potential in this stuff that I do. I tried to get these guys to Detroit for Melges 24 Nationals, but they weren't quite ready. I think that they will be now that they understand the game better.

Attention signal in 3 minutes, and I promise to get the whole sequence from 5 down.

Clean, probably a small correction but... I thought it was first to win 5 races not 4. If HB wind the next race they make it a 3-3 tie and would still have at least 2 races to go. Not a "single winner takes all race" tomorrow.

Unless, of course, I'm wrong...

I know that the rules do not specify this - the rules, in fact, specify that a minimum of four races is required to have a match. The competitors can choose to do most anything if they agree to it.

Exciting start - i'll let you guys watch it shortly. Big split, lots of separation, HB to the left, Honour to the right.

30 second lead to Bob and the boys at the mark. Bouncing Honour to the right was the right move, and it still looks like HB just has more upwind speed, and hence, options.

Quick comment - my boy BT at Torreson Marine in Musketucky personally supervised the bottom job that Heartbreaker had in preparation for this event. Brian said that it was the most incredible bottom job he's ever seen. Torreson donated much of the cost of the bottom job to the Challenger team - and I'm too much of a slacker to get their logo on the website yet.

So two things: 1) If you want a real Grand Prix bottom job on your race boat and you're in Lake Michigan, it is damned obvious that they are able to make a one-design boat blazing fast (if rules allow) and 2) BT - e-mail me a Torreson logo for the site. Thanks.

HB just rounded 17 seconds ahead. Nice gains downwind to honour, wind seems a bit shiftier now. HB rounded and tacked, going well off to the right, honour rounded and is staying out to the left. Once again, there's a ton of separation, just a minute after the rounding. WTF?

OH nice mr clean..... now lets put this into perspective..... Honor leads 3-2 at the moment and your selling bottom jobs for HB... hmmm. So u really think your boy at torreson has somethin do do with HB's performance?..... careful now cuz u torreson and HB may be eating some crow

hey i got an idea?.....bring your boat to Canada and get a real bottom put on at 1/2 the price :)

What ION should do is put a dotted line displaying separation distance, and then a dotten line from each bow to the next mark. Then a arrow at the comittee boat displaying wind speed & direction. That would be the shit. This is just a complete tease....

Excellent suggestion. I can do the line drawing part without problems. The difficulty is figuring out which buoy is "next" an keeping tit all in sync. Right now it's a bit complicated when the far buoys change in the middle of the race. I'll see what I can do about the wind data.

Jerry and I are already discussing how to display such things for the next race.

Any other suggestion?

Not far from the mark - really beautiful little battle here. Honour is closing the gap nicely.

BIG error by Honour! Big error, tacked way too early, and couldn't lay the mark, had to complete two extra tacks to get around! 50 second delta.

I can unequivocally say that the Torreson marine bottom job is the reason for the sudden increase in speed. I can literally see the tiny rocket engines that BT embedded in the paint shooting their flatulence off.

BTW - Torreson hasn't paid me or this broadcast a dime. They're just cool cats, and if Brian says he's never seen a better bottom job, I believe him.

No more newby posts, please. Especially if you're from the tundra.

Poor canucks - if Dave D will just stay between his man and the hoop, we're going to OVERTIME baby.

No, I was looking at ION at it looked as though Honour Dt'ed, separated , and gained before the WM. I am trying to determine whether or not ION's rendering is an accurate representation.


Anyone?

It was a dt, that's two times that Honour had to do that. Heartbreaker's lead was up to 50 seconds at the bottom mark, but they've given a bit back just to stay on top of Honour. 3/4 way up to the final mark, barring disaster it looks like Heartbreaker and Honour will be tied, with one race likely to follow. I've got to go off-line for a bit to charge the battery on the phone providing the web link. Be back in about a half-hour to put up pics of this race, and video of the start of the next, assuming we have one.

Tracker shows that Honour won the start, was able to hold a windward position on starboard over HB and take them out past the port layline. Both are keeping noses above the mark for now...

Did Clean fall off the boat? Too bad, he does nice work.

Anyhow, yeah, it looks like it. Honour looking to round the first ww mark in the lead...

It'll be DARK at 7pm, so this is likely it for the day -- go Honour!

Does anyone else find that the tracking is really hogging system resources? If I close that tab I'm OK but the whole computer really bogs when it's open (not very new computer, but it didn't do this until today...)

Yeah, my laptop completely stops responding until I force IE or FF to close. Have given up on the tracking for now.

The same things happens to me. I have to close Firefox once and a while.

Looks like Honour pulled a bit on Heartbreaker coming up to the leeward mark.

Yes, system resources (processor) are definitely being utilized... My dual processor system shows 50% utilization to IE 6 most of the time.

Both boats are doing 9-10 knots heading straight for pins... If tracker is right then I predict a course change.

No need to panic. There are real life passes and then there are technical glitches that look like passes.
ionE will report the last position it got, even if it's old, until it gets a new one. Someone probably sat on the black box!
Looks like a great deciding race!

Looks like HB got the pole down and tacked faster.

This 'marks to starboard' thing is weird -- but yeah, looks like a 40 degree right shift. It's a drag race now until they get the next ww mark moved -- hope it doesn't shift more -- WAIT -- a new mark just appeared and is moving up the course (on a crash boat?)

I see what I can do about reducing system resources used. The system used to stop working quite often yesterday so that would have stopped using any cpu resources. ;o)

PM me with your computer configuration and I'll see if I can find a similar computer to test with.

It wasn't that Honour pushed HB out - it was a 25 degree shift that put both boats past the layline.

The Race Committee somehow "missed" it, even with both competitors reaching, pole on the headstay, for the entire "downwind" leg. All a big infuriating - a one-tack upwind and a zero-tack downwind does not a match-race make.

Great start sequence, HB won it by a bit, but the shift made it all academic.
